These socks are well made, and fit well - no lumpy toes. They are just the right weight to comfort my tender feet, but not thick like boot socks. The only drawback is the wide elastic inside the cuff. It invariably causes deep indentations in my ankles, cutting off circulation and causing my feet to swell. I have medical issues that causes a tendency toward this problem. I am sure most people would be happy with them, The colors are fun and cheerful. They go through the laundry looking like new. The colors have stayed bright even after several washings. If you wear shoes bigger than 8.5 you might find them too snug, or not quite able to fit as securely over the heel as you would prefer.
I received these socks and am quiet pleased with them, at least the pairs that made it through the first washing. After receiving them and before wearing them, I put them in the wash after which a hole appeared in one of the socks at the heal corner where they come together with the foot and the ankle. I tried emailing the seller and received no response in regard to a replacement sock for the one that fell apart. Overall synopsis: cute and warm if they make it through the first wash. Expect 20% to fall apart and no response from the seller to rectify the situation.
I do like these socks. They are very pretty and comfortable and warm. not a heavy knit, a fairly light weight for a wool sock. I washed one pair to see if they would shrink because they are made of merino wool, but they did not. So that was good, because washing socks by hand is not convenient. HOWEVER, here is the heads up: I have average width feet, and wear a size 8 shoe. These socks pull over the heel very snug. If you do not have an average width foot or if your shoe size is even one size larger that an 8 I would not advise ordering these as you may not be able to get them on, Also, there is a disclaimer the company has put on amazon stating they DO accept returns, so apparently some reviewers don't know this as they stated they could not return these. I will be keeping mine as I see no problem with them. It would have been nice if they had either made them a bit larger at the top of the cuff because that is where you really have to stretch them to the max to get them over the heel. Or at least made two sizes to choose from.
I love these socks! They're thick, super comfy, soft and fit my size ten feet well. They wash up nicely with regular detergent and do not shrink or pill. The label recommends washing in warm water but I used hot and everything was fine. The colors are vibrant and great for fall and winter.
Overall, these are very attractive and comfortable socks and I certainly recommend them.
